Thought Leadership

Coined in 1994, by Joel Kurtzman, Thought Leadership is a term to describe business ideas that merit attention. Thought Leaders are organisations and people who are recognised as being at the forefront of innovation and cutting-edge thinking, and having the confidence to promote or share those ideas as distilled insights for business improvement.
